Abstract

Venous tbromboembolic disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality during pregnancy and in the puerperium. We present a case of extensive venous thrombosis originating within the right ovarian vein and extending proximally through the inferior vena cava to the level of the right atrium discovered one day following cesarean section in a patient who bad previously undergone in vitro fertilization for infertility. The diagnosis was established with echocardiography combined with ultrasonography and computerized tomography. To our knowledge, this is the first case of ovarian vein thrombosis extending as far as the right atrium. (C) 2000 by Le Jacq Communications, Inc.
